Cygnet

The Channel

 

Cygnet is an interesting town on the western side of the Channel area near the mouth of the Huon River.

 

There are several craft galleries and places to dine. We tried the pies at the Double Delight Bakery at the southern end of the town - superb.

 

There is also a public golf course and a popular caravan park.

 

The road north from the town heads towards Huonville. There is an alternate drive to the west around the shores of the Huon River. Also a pleasant diversion to Drip Beach at the southern end of the drive.

 

Camping at the caravan park

 

High in the hills above Cygnet to the west and Woodbridge to the east is the Hartz View Vineyard. There are superb views to the west towards the Hartz Mountains. There is also an historical row of 'Picker's Huts' which were used by fruit pickers when the Channel and Huon districts were dominated with apple orchards. The vineyard also hosts a fine restaurant.

 

 

Drip Beach. 10 kilometres south west of Cygnet.
